I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Small Heath off the council. I have a mortgage offer with TSB. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

Planning on purchasing a flat in Small Heath. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Small Heath conveyancer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent told us that the seller will only proceed if we use the agent's preferred conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Small Heath
